After teasing wearable thinness, Xiaomi has officially launched the Mi Band 7 in China, touting some notable improvements over its under-$50 predecessor.
Unveiled in the home of Xiaomi, Mi Band 7 retains the same design as the Mi Band 6, but the width has been increased from 1.52 inches to 1.62 inches with 326ppi and 25% larger display area. The AMOLED display now includes support for the popular Always-on feature with essential information now available at a glance without the need to wake the screen.
To celebrate this upgrade, Xiaomi has designed over 100 new watch faces to adorn this large AMOLED display on the Mi Band 7. Each new design has been tuned to ensure minimal battery draw when using other features including SpO2 and 24/7 heart rate tracking. Blood oxygen (SpO2) tracking now includes the ability to vibrate and notify you if levels drop below 90%. This was not possible in previous versions of the Mi Band lineup despite several recent iterations including SpO2 tracking as standard.
120 sports tracking modes are also available with popular actions like running, swimming, cycling, yoga, hiking and more. Calorie consumption tracking is also available, with training analysis also able to provide tips, tricks and raw fat loss measurement data on Mi Band 7. This data includes information such as VO2 max, suggested rest periods and safe training tips.
The battery life is up to 14 days on a single charge with general use, but Xiaomi suggests you can get up to nine days with heavy use. Unfortunately, Mi Band 7 still uses a proprietary magnetic charger that is attached to the back of the display case.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 7 will be available at 239 Yuan (~$36) for those who pre-order and is available in six colors: black, blue, green, pink, white and orange. Chinese buyers will also have the opportunity to get an NFC-capable model for 270 yuan ($40) with AliPay support. Global availability is not known yet, but it is very likely that Xiaomi will push its wearables into more markets in the coming weeks and months.
